World SBK Races Donington Park

Mild climate, sun beating on the asphalt of Donington Park circuit and a few
high clouds in the sky: the second day of the 7th Round of MOTUL FIM
Superbike World Championship  was welcomed by weather conditions rather
unusual for the typical UK standards.

WorldSBK – FP3, SP2, Race1

Leon Camier rode a solid race at Donington Park, finishing in Top 4 for the
second time during this WorldSBK season. The 29-years old British rider,
at his home-track here in Donington Park, got the 8th place on the grid
during the Superpole2 session, with a lap time of 1’28.409, preceded by
the excellent 3rd time in FP3 early this morning.

When the light went off in Race 1 Leon started fast and managed to pass two riders after the first laps, becoming the group
leader in the race for the podium. After a long battle with the World Champion Nicky Hayden, the British rider made the most of his MV Agusta F4 RC and finished with an
excellent 4th place, gaining another 13 points in the overall standings.

WorldSSP – FP3, SP1, SP2

A few minutes before the end of Superpole1 Jules Cluzel lost his fast lap because of too much traffic on track. Unfortunately, the number 3 in championship standing has lost his access to Superpole2 for just one position, qualifying 13th (1’31.376); a lap time that in Superpole2 would allow him to start 8th in tomorrow’s race. The teammate Lorenzo Zanetti tried to take full advantage of the improvements made to the setting of the MV Agusta F3 675, going to qualify in 9th position during the Superpole2.
